Impeachment complaint filed against Abalos

Iloilo Vice Governor Rolex Suplico filed an impeachment complaint Thursday afternoon against Commission on Elections (COMELEC) chairman Benjamin Abalos Sr. who has been accused of offering bribes to a Cabinet official and a businessman for an allegedly overpriced deal with China.

Suplico claimed to have a “solid” case against the Comelec chairman based on the testimonies of De Venecia III and Neri, including what he called a “series of unfortunate incidents,” such as Abalos’ presence at a number of meetings on the NBN project.
